The Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary will present the Texas Heritage Festival from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., June 4, to celebrate all that makes the Lone Star State so spectacular.
The Festival features Western music, local artisans, historical demonstrations and interactive children’s activities. Guests can rustle up some tasty Texas grub, meet resident wildlife ambassadors and explore the Native Texas Butterfly Garden.
Children will love exploring the Heard’s Pioneer Village, comprised of eight pint-sized buildings typical of prairie settlements in the late 1800s— such as a schoolhouse, general store and settlers’ cabins.
Free admission for children under 2, Heard members and McKinney residents (proof required), see website for details. Tickets include general admission to Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary for the day of the event and free parking and cost $9 for adults, $6 for seniors 60 and up and children 3 through 12.
